About the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation
The Cystic Fibrosis Foundation (CFF) is the leading organization devoted to curing and controlling cystic fibrosis (CF), a life shortening genetic disease that affects the lungs and digestive system causing serious complications.
With the support of the CFF, there have been significant advances in CF research and care over the past 50 years. The median survival age has improved from early childhood in the 1950s to 37 years today. Research is currently taking place that suggests it may be possible to actually repair the defective CF gene, which contains misfolded protein. If the research remains on track, these therapies could be ready for FDA approval in 2012. It is believed that this approach to treatment could stop the cascading effects of CF and add decades to the life span of children born with CF today.
The CFF is recognized as one of the most efficient charities in the country, receiving the coveted four-star rating for sound fiscal management from Charity Navigator, the largest charity evaluator in the United States. According to Charity Navigator, the CFF outperforms a majority of nonprofit organizations in America with respect to fiscal management.
After more than 50 years of service, the CFF remains committed to its core mission: to assure a means to cure and control cystic fibrosis and to improve the quality of life for those with the disease. For more information, visit www.cff.org or call the North Florida CFF office at (904) 733-3560.
